Tottenham fans finally fed up of Victor Wanyama after Colchester defeat
Tottenham Hotspur suffered the ignominy of losing to League Two side Colchester United in the third round of the Carabao Cup on Tuesday night – and fans are finally fed up of midfielder Victor Wanyama.
Mauricio Pochettino named a very strong Spurs side to take on Colchester, including stars such as Davinson Sanchez, Ben Davies, Lucas Moura, Dele Alli and Eric Dier. Christian Eriksen, Son Heung-min and Lucas Moura came off the bench.
But Colchester’s rigid four-man defence and five-man midfield proved impenetrable for a side that reached the Champions League final in May. Lacklustre, slow and uninterested, Spurs’ bid to end the ‘Trophy’ criticism has taken another blow.
Kenya captain Wanyama, 28, started in the middle of the park for Spurs in what was just his second appearance of the campaign for the north Londoners. But the ex-Southampton star was woeful.
A number of poor touches, a lack of pace and some misplaced passes drew groans from the away end at the Community Stadium – as he came into the side for game time ahead of Harry Winks and Tanguy Ndombele.
Spurs fans took to Twitter to vent about Wanyama, with many seemingly fed up with the player that cost the club £11million (Guardian) three years ago. Many are desperate to have seen his last appearance in a Spurs shirt.
He can stop picking them? Like Wanyama for instance? Erikssen you can understand being involved but Wanyama is abysmal. Just don't get that at all.

You’re very kind, Alasdair. Wanyama had several careless turnovers that would have led to counter attack goals if we were playing a team with any finishing ability.

Why are people saying it was three DMs. It was a back three, which is even worse. Way too much respect for the opposition. Wanyama was the one who should have been dropped. Watching him was so painful. Flashes of vintage Vic w/ long spells of an old Vic bossed by Colchester.
